I am using Ubuntu 16.04 running qtpass 1.1 (package istalled is qtpass_1.1.0-1_amd64.deb).

I did some configuration changes using the setting dialog and now the app starts minimized with an icon in the status bar on top of the unity desktop (e.g. where also the time is shown). If I click on the icon the only option I get is "quit". There is no way to get the main application window.

I tried also to uninstall the application using apt-get purge qtpass and installed it again but the behaviour did not change.

  1. Any idea what went wrong here?
  2. Is there a way to start the application not 'minimized to tray'?

On some window managers double clicking the icon shows the main application again.

You could try removing (or editing) the configuration from ~/.config/IJHack/QtPass.conf

Thanks for pointing out. Removing the config file made the application accessible again.
Apart from this it should not be possible to get into this situation using the GUI only. I am going to add more details regarding my configuration once it happens again.

I just saw the same issue. Running a fresh and updated install of Ubuntu 16.04, installed QtPass, messed with some settings (including enabling "Config -> Settings -> Use Trayicon"), and now whenever I try to run QtPass the main window renders the window behind it (though the buttons work). The tray icon is displayed but clicking (or double-clicking) it has no effect; the only contextual menu button it offers is "Quit" (which only sometimes works?). QtPass often fails to start entirely and I have to kill the qtpass process from the command-line to get it to start again.

Removing the line useTrayIcon=true from ~/.config/IJHack/QtPass.conf completely restores normal behavior.

Something is definitely bugged with the tray icon functionality, I'd say, at least on my system. Here are some details:
